I swear, every time I have a giveaway winner to announce, something conspires against me that prevents the typing and posting of that announcement. Seriously, once my Internet went out for three days and this time, I've been super busy with another project (more on that later) so yeah, there ya' have it. I know - excuses, excuses, right!?

Anyway, there were two novels up for grabs and the winners are...

Winner of Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay

■ Lianne B.

Winner of Beloved by Robin Lee Hatcher

■ Heidi R.

Hooray! Congrats, Lianne and Heidi. Lianne has already replied to her email, so Heidi you should now have an email asking for a mailing address in your inbox; please just get back to me by November 19th with that information. For everyone else, I do wish I could send you all a copy but am thrilled you participated in fun with these giveaways - thank you for sharing about them!

Here is a quick recap of some of the most recent blog posts:
